Welcome on board then :)

While we try to provide packages as much as possible for ubuntu, some
components are actually used (in production) from debian packages. It may be
that the ubuntu packages have been neglected.

I will look at this monday.

I believe unittest2 is a very recent dependency and this may also be a
packaging oversight.
Thanks for reporting.

In the mean time you may want to try: this
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unittest2/0.5.1-1 or this:

You should probably delete it manually, and then recreate it with the
missing dependencies in place.

Hope this helps a bit.
